Celebrating 50 Years of Health, Healing and Hope
2024 is a momentous year for Catholic Medical Center (CMC).
Fifty years ago this October, Sacred Heart Hospital, located on Hanover Street in Manchester, moved across the Merrimack River to combine with Notre Dame Hospital on the West Side of town, creating Catholic Medical Center CMC.

Catholic Charities New Hampshire provides a Faith in Action column in each issue of Parable as our Partner in Mission.
